This is great! (for those wondering, bagoong is like a shrimp paste found in Filipino/Asian food stores) - For less heat, I added chopped beans together with the chillies. I did not add fresh tumeric, I used powdered, it was just as yummy.

You can always use google to look for nicer pics in other sites that won't offend your delicate senses so much. No one's forcing you to stay here, geesh.

What a moron.
